Hand and a Half Swords measure 38 ¼ inches overall and have a 27 ¼ inch, sharpened, high carbon spring steel blade. Modeled after medieval swords wielded in the 16th century, these are two-handed, functional swords. This type of medieval sword was called a long sword, or longsword in the medieval and renaissance era. It was named such not because of the long blade, but instead, the long grip which was designed to accommodate both hands. Initially used as a medieval military sword, hand and a half swords developed into more of a knight sword used for dueling. These swords were sometimes referred to as bastard swords because the overall length was in between a long sword, such as a Wallace sword, and a short sword. The pommel is crafted using a peening technique. The handle is manufactured of Makassar ebony wood and covered in black leather. The handle measures 11 inches overall in length. These popular medieval swords are fit for a real knight and include a brown leather scabbard. This Hand-and-a-half sword for sale is handmade by Cas Iberia and Hanwei and weighs approximately 2 lbs, 13 ounces.
